Editorial Reviews

Review


"Clearly and engagingly written and will be of use in undergraduate courses on women in antiquity."--Religious Studies Review


"An excellent and lucid study of women and their rights (or lack thereof) at the crucial period, the transition from paganism to Christianity, and the resulting laws. A strong study!"--J.M. Balcer, Ohio State University


"This little gem of a book...is a delight to read....Clark has done a tremendous service in stitching together a fascinating patchwork of facts and ideas."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review


"A masterpiece of compression....She has given us not only a first-class introduction, but also an important historical contribution."--Times Higher Education Supplement


"Her book provides a solid grounding in late-antique women's history for the lay reader or student....Clark's book stands as good, accessible women's history....Her book is a fine contribution to the ongoing process of illuminating the lives of women and their relationship to the discourses that represent them to us."--American Historical Review

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By T. Wilson on October 9, 2009
Format: Paperback
Women have been overlooked or even completely ignored throughout centuries of history. In many college courses, women do not have a voice. This lack is based on the assumption that the thoughts and activities of women were not important enough to write down and save for future generations. In her book, Women in Late Antiquity: Pagan and Christian Life-Styles, author Gillian Clark attempts to fill part of this gap in the history of women.

There are problems involved in research for a book such as this. Clark found extremely few written records of any type available that were actually written by women. Educated white males that mention women have written the available sources. This leaves us with a bias against women because of the prevailing beliefs of the period. Unfortunately Gillian Clark had to piece together a great deal of history in what she refers to as a "patchwork" because of the lack of primary sources. Using resources in a manner for which they were never intended must be extremely difficult, but Gillian Clark has done an excellent job doing just that. The purpose of her book is addressed in the first paragraph of her introduction.

"The aim . . . is to give some basic information on women's lives in late antiquity, and to make a start on answering some basic questions: to what extent could women choose what to do? What social, practical, or legal constraints limited their choices? What options were available besides (or within) marriage and housekeeping? What was housekeeping like? What level of education or of health care was available? What conduct and ideals were women taught to admire? Clark introduction)"

The sixth century AD is the time period which Gillian Clark uses as her cut off.

11 of 13 people found the following review helpful By "gerilynn" on June 13, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book is a fascinating look into women's lives in late antiquity. It goes into great detail about health (medicine), marriage, inheritance, household duties, and pregnancy as well as such topics as the different rights women had in the past. What I really loved about this book was that it wasn't a feminist reading about all the injustices put upon women. The author gives clear facts which you can formulate your own opinion on. It was very informative and I would highly recommend it.
